Fifteen-year-old Tiffany Wright was shot once in the head while waiting for her school bus Monday morning. The pregnant teen died at a hospital. Her baby girl was delivered and is in critical condition. An update on suspect is included.
The North Carolina News Network reports that Tiffany Wright, 15, was fatally shot in the head Monday morning. Wright was 32 weeks pregnant, and doctors were able to deliver the infant who is now at a hospital in Charlotte.
The AP reports that Wright “died after being rushed to a hospital” and that the baby is in critical condition.
Wright was shot one time in the head just prior to 6:00am as she was waiting for her school bus. Wright’s foster mother walked her to the bus stop and then started back home. After hearing gunshots, Wright’s foster mother returned to find the teenager in the street.

According to the North Carolina News Network:
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a homicide detective. Detective B. Fitch is the lead detective assigned to the case. In addition, you may also call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
